Akwa United of Uyo this evening upstaged favourites Lobi Stars of Makurdi 2-1 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, to win the 2015 Federation Cup.

Akwa United, who appeared in their first-ever cup final, will represent Nigeria in next year’s CAF Confederation Cup on account of this historic cup triumph.

Nomso Edo put Promise Keepers ahead with a well-taken free kick after 36 minutes after Friday Ubong was brought down on top of the Lobi box.

Lobi, cup winners in 2003, chased the game after the interval, but it was Abdulafeez Awakan who doubled Akwa’s lead in the 70th minute when he powered home a shot beyond the goalkeeper from the top of the 18-yard box.

Substitute Barnabas Imengar Junior pulled a goal back for Lobi in stoppage time from a brilliantly struck free kick.

Incidentally, both teams clashed on the final day of the Nigeria Premier League season a week ago with Akwa also winning 1-0 to stay up in the top league.

Sunshine Queens won the Women’s version of the Federation Cup after they defeated Bayelsa Queens 3-1 on penalties after full time scores stood at 1-1.

Last year, Sunshine Queens lost to Rivers Angels in the cup final.
